ARCHAEOLOGY

The Daughter of Pharaoh?

Seated Statue of Hatshepsut

Colossal seated statue of the queen of Egypt, Hatshepsut, quite possibly the most famous woman in Egyptian history. This statue reveals a very famous woman in ancient Egypt, and she is considered by many scholars to be the pharaohs daughter of the Bible. If the 1447 BC date is the correct date for the Exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt, then Hatshepsut would be the Princess who discovered the infant Moses "by the rivers brink".
